Screenshots of surveillance video show two females suspected in a shoplifting case at Target Ala Moana.

Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying two female suspects who allegedly stole items from Target at Ala Moana Center and threatened a loss prevention agent with a pocket knife.

Just after 2:20 p.m. on Jan. 28, the two suspects entered the retail store, selected some items and left the establishment without paying for the merchandise.

Police said the loss prevention agent stopped the suspects outside of the store when one of the perpetrators brandished a pocket knife and threatened to stab the victim.

Both suspects then fled.

Anyone with information is asked to call police or CrimeStoppers at 955-8300.
